A big change is happening to Microsoft Syntex in that pay as you go (PAYG) is coming and this usage will be billed though a Microsoft Azure Subscription. This is currently in a FREE public preview and only initially for Syntex unstructured document processing (document understanding) and prebuilt document processing. I will setup Syntex pay as you go in my M365 tenant and Azure subscription and provide my thoughts.
I've just spotted something very exciting in my M365 tenant a new PREVIEW action in Power Automate & Azure Logic Apps for Syntex content assembly. This enables users to generate personalised documents in a workflow using SharePoint Syntex Content Assembly and this opens up the doors to the whole bulk document generation story from a workflow! This is very exciting news and one that I'm sure will be very popular! The only way previously to create documents using Syntex content assembly was from a document library and only one document could be created at a time - so there was lots of mouse and keyboard clicking!
In this blog I will show you how to retrieve M365 audit logs with Azure Logic Apps & Power Automate including the logic to handle Pagination for very large tenants (number of results returned limited to prevent response timeouts). I provide instructions and templates for both Azure Logic Apps and Power Automate so you can install in your tenant today.
There has been an exciting development/game changer with the new Dataverse for Teams now allowing users to leverage the Azure API Management service as a custom connector in the Power Platform. This means with the custom connector you can call the Azure Management API which can then run an Azure Function which can run code i.e. PowerShell. The automation possibilities are endless and all using standard Teams licensing whereas before you would need premium licences to run some PowerShell in Azure to make a Microsoft Graph call or execute a PnP PowerShell script for example.
